Cleveland-Cliffs to Host United States Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm at its Butler Works

Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE: CLF) announced that it is hosting Secretary Jennifer Granholm at its Butler Works plant in Pennsylvania today, April 22nd. The Secretary’s visit follows the recent Department of Energy’s (DOE) final transformer efficiency standard rule that will provide for the continued utilization of Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel (GOES) in virtually all of electrical distribution transformer end markets. Cleveland-Cliffs is the sole producer of GOES in the United States, and was selected for award negotiations for up to $75 million in total funding from the DOE to pursue a decarbonization investment at Butler Works.

During the visit, Secretary Granholm will tour the plant and meet with Cleveland-Cliffs’ Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Lourenco Goncalves, company officials, employees as well as union leaders from the United Auto Workers (UAW), the United Steelworkers (USW) and the International Association of Machinists (IAM). Mr. Goncalves will be hosting a speaking program with Secretary Granholm and other invited speakers that will be live streamed on the Company’s YouTube channel. The Secretary is expected to share remarks regarding the Department of Energy’s potential decarbonization investment in Butler Works and DOE’s final distribution transformer rule that protects approximately 1,300 good-paying, steelmaking jobs, ensuring that GOES will continue to sustain the U.S. electric grid.
